2021 CHRISTMAS MINI SESSIONS

I am so excited for these mini sessions and I can’t wait to create beautiful photos for you!  These minis will be outdoors at a park in Hastings MN – exact location TBD and will be communicated as it gets closer, so please check back in a few weeks. 

WHERE DO WE MEET?
*Please plan on arriving a few minutes early so we can start shooting right at your scheduled start time. Exact meeting location details will be updated as the date approaches.

WHAT TO BRING:
It is not necessary to bring anything, however please plan for the weather. Large blankets for warmups can work great as well as hand and feet warmers.

Some prop ideas if you choose to bring any: hot cocoa, candy canes, hats, scarves, mittens, Christmas book.

WHAT DO WE WEAR?
For your planning purposes, I plan to incorporate the colors: gold, dark greens, whites and reds into this setup.

It’s best to keep the coordinating simple. Try not to overthink it.  I recommend picking 2-3 complementary colors and carry them throughout your outfits.  You may want to dress warmly (plenty of layers) since we will only be taking photos outdoors. **Scarves and hats make cute props as well as keep you toasty during your session. 

*Don’t forget to choose something that your family will feel good in!  It will shine through in your photos!  CLICK HERE FOR IDEAS
